In Lahore, the Community has visited for many years the elderly living in a small nursing home in the centre of Yohannabad, a large Catholic neighborhood. "They are our angels" the elderly say about them.

The house of the Community in Lahore was inaugurated in October 2011 (foto). Today it has a small chapel, ameeting room and a beautiful and very colourful school of peace.

In Islamabad, the Community is a friend of the orphaned children and the disabled housed in a care institution. Many of them are Catholics. The Christmas lunch has also been held here for two years.
